    Born in Colombia, Sergio Trujillo initially studied architecture and later graduated as a graphic designer from the Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano.

His series Muros Colombianos (1972-79) illustrates beauty found in debris, capturing Colombian society through photographs of torn posters on walls in public places.
